It's Not Just Cakes!

Grand Wedding Show table display

Yes, we’re always ankle deep in cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and cake pops, but that’s not all we do. We also have to work on marketing Cakeaters. I thought you’d like to hear about 3 things we’ve done in the last two months which have been a lot of fun.

In September we were one of many different vendors pedalling our wares to excited brides and tolerant grooms in the Grand Wedding Show at The Vancouver Convention Centre. Produced by Cultural Weddings , it was an extravaganza of wedding dresses, florists, decorators, jewellers, DJ’s and, of course, cake decorators! We shared our booth with Harjeet from Sweet Treats and between us we put together a beautiful display.  We thought we were a shoe-in for the best decorated booth, but no luck!!

Then in October we had our 15 minutes of fame on Breakfast TV ! Dawn Chubai and her team arrived at the shop VERY early in the morning to learn how to decorate a Halloween cake while on LIVE TV! It was a lot of fun putting it all together; watching and participating in the filming process and then being able to send the cake back to the station for everyone to eat.  Here we are (from left to right) Kim, Michele, Elena, Dawn, Addie, Julien, and me!




Finally, only a couple weeks ago, Elena and I set up our tables, cakes, cookies, cakepops, and cupcakes at the 6th annual Urban Wedding Show at The River Rock Casino Resort . There were 45 different vendors at the show but we were the ONLY ones who had cakes on display. That made me happy!! Not only did we meet some lovely brides and but we also connected with some other really great vendors. Sue from Riverside Banquet Halls had her table across from me. I have been delivering party and wedding cakes to them for more than 10 years but have never had a chance to chat with her. I can tell you that she is one of the nicest people I’ve met.  If you are looking for a venue for your celebration, give her a call.

We collaborated with Kelly from Kelly Kaur Henna  Designs. Take a look at her work. Totally gorgeous. We can’t wait to work with her again. It is a great thing to create a beautiful and simple canvass for such an artist.  Hey Kelly!! We loved having you working in the shop with us!   

During the two shows, we offered a 15% discount off wedding orders in 2013, providing it was booked (and deposit paid) by December 31st. I am happy to extend that discount to anyone, regardless of their attendance at either show. So if you know someone getting married next year, pass it on!!!
